Hm, could you clarify how this symlink is dangling - it is handled by a
dependency to dejavu-lgc-fonts, no?

$ rpm -qRp vdr-skins-20061119-3.noarch.rpm | grep deja
$ rpmls dejavu-lgc-fonts-2.19-1.noarch.rpm | grep
-rw-r--r--  /usr/share/fonts/dejavu-lgc/DejaVuLGCSansMono.ttf
Comment 2 Florian La Roche 2007-11-18 10:33:34 EST
The current Fedora-devel rpm only contains the following mono fonts:
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           264100 Oct 28 16:22
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           247740 Oct 28 16:22
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           194904 Oct 28 16:22
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           202304 Oct 28 16:22

So looks like a SansMono -> MonoSans rename did happen in the font package.

Oh, thanks.  Looks like the dir changed as well.  Fixed in 20061119-4.

Hello Ville,

dejavu seems to have changed back again to the old names, so currently I get
the following warning about a dangling symlink:

vdr-skins has dangling symlink from
/usr/share/vdr/text2skin/Enigma/FontMonoSpaced.ttf to

Existing path in current dejavu rpm package:

Oh joy, thanks for the catch.  Adjusted for dejavu-lgc-fonts >= 2.22 in 20061119-5.
